Hair Styles
Add Layers To You Hair: One of the best ways to conceal thinning hair is with a hairstyle that will add a lot of texture and layers, as this can create volume. This may mean trying a shorter style, as the weight of longer hair can pull your hair down and draw more attention to those thinning areas.

Coloring: There are many things you can do with coloring your hair. Your stylist can educate you on the different color options that would be best for you.  But in the meantime, know that color catches light in a variety of ways that can create the illusion of fuller hair, so you most certainly want to discuss all the possibilities with him or her!  For Example...

Go Ombre: Having a darker top portion to your hair and lighter ends is a great trick to helping your locks appear lusher! 

Highlights or Lowlights: One-dimensional hair can make your hair look dull and flat, so by using a combination of lowlights, highlights, or even some color accents, your stylist can do wonders for your hair!

A Part: Having a defined part can draw attention to your fine hair, therefore try a style that does not have a prominent part.

Add Hair Extensions: Clip-in hair extensions are great, they are an easy non-permanent way to add length and volume to your hair.  Additionally, clip in extensions does not damage the hair, unlike other hair alternatives like bonding which can weigh down the hair and cause breakage or even prevent hair growth.  Quality is important when it comes to hair extensions, so if you are looking to get some, you can get $10 off with my link, for Luxy Hair Extensions.

Hair Products
There are some great hair products out there that do live up to their claims.  The key is using them the correct way.

Dry Shampoo: While dry shampoo works amazingly on oil absorption, it is also perfect for adding volume and lift.  The key is to apply the dry shampoo at the beginning at the roots.

Protectors: Hair breakage is a significant contributor to thin hair and combine that with a hot styling tool, your hair is doomed! A quick way to prevent your hair from getting damaged is to apply a heat protector on your hair. In addition to a heat shield, you should invest in a UV protector along with some Moroccan or argan oils.

Stop Overdoing The Do  
Conditioner:  While conditioner is a necessity if you don’t wash it out thoroughly you can weigh your hair down, and on top of that it can make your hair look oily.

Washing Your Hair Everyday. Keeping your hair clean is important, but washing it too often can thin your hair.  The longer you can go without washing your hair the better!

Don't Over Dry: Blowing drying your hair all the time can cause your hair to become brittle and flat.  Partially air drying your hair will allow your hair to be stronger. Over exposure to heat on your hair can make your hair look dull, as the heat from the dryer causes the cuticles to open, which can lead to frizz and breakage.  A tip to save on drying time, don’t apply conditioner to your entire hair, only apply to the ends of your hair.

Don’t Over Bleach:  While adding color for dimension is essential, over processing your hair will cause it to break off. Hence you don’t want to be bleaching your hair with each visit to the salon.

As you can see, none of these thinning hair remedies are difficult. Simply by learning how to best style your thinning hair while learning to use the correct products, you can do a great deal to give your hair the boost it needs to make it look like it is both voluminous and thick.
